In a thrilling Mid-Atlantic Prep League contest in Pottstown, PA, the Blue Storm girls' varsity soccer team battled host Hill School to a 1-1 draw October 29.
Mercersburg took the lead early when Nora Smith '24 took Caroline Wilkinson's '23 corner kick and headed it in for a 1-0 lead. Hill tied it midway through the second half, and that's the way it stayed through regulation, so the teams headed to overtime.
Goalie Annie Mohr '26 made a couple of huge saves in the first overtime to keep the score tied at one. The Blue Storm had a chance to win it with a minute to play in the second overtime, but when the Mercersburg shot went just over the crossbar, the game ended in a 1-1 tie.
